Here Is A Look At Cardi B’s Top Hair Looks And Be Prepared To Have Some Serious Wig Envy

It’s not unusual to see Cardi B dance onto the stage or the red carpet with a brightly colored wig in shades we’ve never seen before. Those daring hair looks are usually courtesy of one of her many wigs, most of which she’s credited to hairdresser Tokyo Stylez. Stylez doesn’t just create wigs, she creates masterpieces — all perfectly installed, might I add.

You might remember the pulled back updo Cardi had at Rihanna’s 2019 Diamond Ball or the Rapunzel-esque red inches she wore for a Poison Ivy costume. To scroll through Stylez’s Instagram is to swim through a sea of flawlessly blended wigs.

Bursting onto the rap scene in 2016, on the sixth season of VH1’s Love & Hip Hop: New York, Cardi made a name for herself in the beauty space with her down-to-there straight lengths in varying tones of cherry red, raven, and platinum. From short lilac pixies to waist-length rainbow varieties, Cardi isn’t afraid to try any hair look, and always looks great in them.

We’ve rounded up some of her best wig looks to prove just how many she must have. Our only question is where she keeps them all.

After COVID-19 made its way to the United States, Cardi B made a statement on Instagram Live, “Coronavirus. Shit is real. Shit is getting real.” The soundbite ended up getting remixed into a catchy dance song. She looked sensational in a bronze fishnet dress from TLZ L’Femme. The honey blonde highlights blended seamlessly into the caramel hair for a look we hope to see again on the entertainer in the future.

Cardi seems really into hair bows, as this is the second look with the style that she’s worn during quarantine. The rapper shared a close-up of the bubblegum pink wig to Instagram on Tuesday, April 28. She used half the wig to create a bow on the top of her head while the rest of the hair (except for the bangs) was tied into a low ponytail. We’re going to be watching closely to see if she experiments with any more bows while self-isolating.

In February of 2019, Cardi B wore this long, rainbow wig that we couldn’t look away from.

Cardi’s look at the NBA All-Star Game in February was next level luxury. She styled the perfectly slicked-back, length ponytail with a fur vet and a purple Birkin bag that was just so extra. The garnet wig was slicked back into this low, side ponytail. We need the details on the styling products ASAP because not a single hair is out of place.

Her Lilac Look

At a party during Super Bowl weekend, the rapper’s wig was short and lilac with magenta streaks.

In April, the performer went live on Instagram to discuss a few political issues with Sen. Bernie Sanders. She made her appearance in this gorgeous cobalt blue wig. Rather than do the typical space buns, the hair was pulled up into two large bows on either side of her head.

Cardi was a stunner in this half-up, half-down style with flipped ends. The throwback look comes with a twist – literally – as the front of the hair is in medium-sized Bantu knots. Fun fact: Although her wig may look black in some photos, it’s actually an indigo shade.

Our regular, degular, shmegular girl from the Bronx arrived at the Powerhouse NYC 2019 concert in this nurse costume just before Halloween. This super straight, waist-length crimson wig matches her outfit and bold rouge lip flawlessly.

Have you ever seen a wig as long as the one the rapper wore to the Global Citizens Concert in 2018?

This ultra-long wig’s raven-black space buns were accented with a thick, electric-pink stripe right down the center of its blunt bangs, making Cardi look like a character straight out of the Mortal Kombat video game. Even when wearing dark hair, she can’t resist having a pop of color added in somewhere.

Cardi B Explains Why She Turned Off ‘WAP’ When Her Daughter Walked Into the Room: ‘I Don’t Make Music For Kids’

Cardi B Explains Why She Turned Off ‘WAP’ When Her Daughter Walked Into the Room: ‘I Don’t Make Music For Kids’

Cardi B is tired of people criticizing her for the racy lyrics to “WAP”. On Monday, the Grammy-winning rapper defended herself against haters who called her out for turning off her multi-platinum song “WAP” when her daughter entered the room.

The drama started earlier this week when Cardi went viral for a recent livestream fail.

During the livestream, Cardi appeared to be having a great time, dancing and singing along to her hit single, but quickly turned the music off when she saw her two-year-old daughter, Kulture enter the room.

Cardi mumbled “No, no, no, no,” as she shut off the raunchy song. Then, she coyly took a sip of wine.

While some people found this incident funny (and relatable), there were a select few who didn’t.

Some haters took the video as an opportunity to call Cardi hypocritical for shielding her daughter from her own song while little kids around the world are being exposed to the NSFW lyrics.

“So ya daughter cant listen to it but everybody else’s daughter can @iamcardib?” wrote an infuriated Twitter user. “AW OKAY! Exactly what I been saying you have an agenda to push with that trash ass label your with. DISGUSTING”.

Cardi didn’t waste any time defending herself. “Ya needs to stop with this already!” Cardi wrote back. “I’m not Jojo Siwa! I don’t make music for kids, I make music for adults. Parents are responsible on what their children listen to or see. I’m a very sexual person but not around my child, just like every other parent should be.”

Cardi then went on to defend the right for mothers to be sexual while also being maternal when they want to be.

“There’s moms who are strippers. Pop pussy, twerk all night for entertainment,” she wrote. “Does that mean they do it around their kids? No! Stop making this a debate. It’s pretty much common sense.”

While some users still felt the need to drag Cardi (haters gonna hate), many of her fans came to her defense, calling out the double standards that Cardi faces as a female rapper.

“It’s always the female artist getting critique,” wrote one Twitter user. “Why people don’t talk about all the disgusting music some men be putting out?”

“This!!!” wrote another user. “Like @Eminem literally has multiple songs about murdering people but no one bats an eye about that but because it’s a female talking about her wet [cat emoji] people jump to conclusions.”

It looks like the controversy surrounding “WAP” isn’t ending any time soon. And hey, if Cardi’s motive behind the song was to spark controversy, she very much succeeded in that goal.

Cardi B Has New Beef And This Time It’s With Peppa The Pig

Cardi B Has New Beef And This Time It’s With Peppa The Pig

By now we’re all probably used to hearing about Cardi B’s drama and it takes a lot to surprise us anymore. But I think few of us would have expected the latest celebrity feud that Cardi would get into.

The “WAP” raptress was recently lamenting about the trials and tribulations of the motherhood when she straight up put Peppa the Pig on blast. Apparently, daughter Kulture has been getting into the hit kids TV show and getting a few new habits that mom Cardi just can’t deal with.

Cardi B puts Peppa the Pig on blast for influencing Kulture in surprising ways.

On Sunday night, rapper Cardi B hilariously announced that she’s has had enough of the pink animated character’s influence on her 2-year-old daughter Kulture’s behavior.

“My baby been watching peppa pig and now Everytime she sees a wetpuddle she wants to stomp on top of it,” Cardi B complained in a tweet, adding her daughter’s UGG boots were damaged. “Deum you peppa pig … COUNT YOUR F—IN DAYS!”

The threat lit up social media with many relating to the mud puddle drama that Peppa the Pig has inflicted upon families around the world.

Apprently, Peppa has a thing for muddy puddles and Kulture is picking up the habit.

Peppa has been known to say, “I love muddy puddles.” Her mom, Mummy Pig, does remind her to wear her boots — but in Kulture’s defense, she doesn’t specify that they should be waterproof.

Peppa’s influence reaches far and wide. She has 21 million YouTube subscribers and is a billion-dollar industry that includes movies, music, books, toys, and theme parks. Meeting Peppa “was like meeting the Pope,” one dad who took his daughter to Peppa Pig World in Hampshire, England, told The Guardian.

Many of her American and Canadian toddler fans have started speaking in a British accent or adopting British phrases after watching the show. There’s something very charming but slightly sinister about hearing a little kid who’s never left Ontario talking about their “swimming costume” or telling their parents to get “all this rubbish off the table.”

Peppa seems to have plenty of other parents on edge for the puddle love as well.

And it’s quite obvious from all the drama on social media that Cardi B isn’t the only parent to share these same feelings about Peppa. Her fans seemed to think the threat was pretty relatable, with one person replying, “Wait til she starts hanging up the phone like a savage,” along with a clip of Peppa.

“I thought I was the only parent struggling! My daughter swears I’m wrong for saying tomato. ‘nO mOmMy, iTs tA-MAHT-toe,’” #breasocool replied.

Another person responded that Peppa is a lot bigger than Cardi B probably thinks.

“Peppa big as hell,” @danigrilm_ replied with a picture of a website claiming the character is 7 feet 1 inch tall. “You might wanna rethink that.”
